»My Mother«

by Victor Ugochukwu Akpokwe, September 6, 2017

My mother,
Who comforts me in all situations,
Who stood by me at all grounds,
She was there even at cold nights,
Hold me around her arms,
Just to keep me warm at winter.
My Mother,
How can I forget your sacrifices,
For nine months, you suffered great pain,
You laid down your life, so I could live,
You starved, so I could eat,
You went naked, so I could be clothed,
You went through discomfort, for my comfort.
How can I ever repay you for all this,
Other than to love you.

Just like a thief at night, / As lightening flashing through the sky, / As the heavy storm in a sea, / So has thou come, / Knocking at the heart of man, / And forcing your way into his life. / / Turning brothers to Enemies, / Turning Children to Orphans, / Making man a desolate being, / Rendering him  sign in to read more »
